Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Adolphus Walker.
Adolphus served in the Army with 784th Tank Battalion from 1942 to 1946. His unit was assigned to 5th Armored Group, which was an all-black segregated group that served during World War II.
He spent some time deployed to “Rhineland” – an area of Western Germany along the Rhine River.
Adolphus now lives in Atlanta and will be 95-years-old this month.
Thank you for your service, Adolphus!
